Hey look kids, feel free to call me out on this one but I'm fully aware of it already.

I've kind of been on a mask kick lately when it comes to writing articles.

There's this one.

And this one.

And then there's this one.

This one.

This one, too...

So...there's a couple articles. And to give me a little break on this you have to admit that this all would've been silly before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that almost everyone is wearing a mask everywhere, this may not be so silly. I mean if I started writing articles about things that we don't wear every day during the pandemic, say like...um...Groucho Glasses (by the way in case you don't know what they are by name, they are the fake plastic glasses with the fake plastic nose) then it would seem a little crazy.

But like I said...almost everyone is wearing a mask these days so this is a thing and here's some important info that we should know about the gaiter. If you are like me, the first time you saw the name gaiter you went, what?!? I knew what a gaiter was but I didn't know that was what it was called.

A gaiter is that piece of fabric that people wear around their necks that they can pull up over their chin, mouth and nose to create a face mask. But...I saw that the Washington Post is now saying that according to a study, a gaiter may not be the way to go.

In fact the study says that wearing a gaiter might be worse than not wearing a mask at all. Hmmm...

You wear a gaiter? Have you been thinking about wearing one? You'll want to check out the Washington Post article here.
